La Feuille des Forêts

New York: Béatrice Coron, 2012. Paperback. Number 4 of 6 copies. Coron describes her book work: "For the last 20 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website]. This work is inspired by a poem by Jean Moreas. Moréas (1856 – 1910)) was a Greek poet, essayist, and art critic who wrote mostly in the French language. The forest leaves of the poem are depicted in twelve hand-cut pages cut from six folded sheets of multi-colored paper that together create a forest. A deer and wolf appear as well. The paper cuts are held in a grey paper folder with the title label on the front cover. In fine condition. Size: 8.5 x 6 inches. ARTB/081921. Fine.
